I can reproduce this slowness even on Emacs 22.3. It arises because
tex-mode wants to be able to signal an error if point is in a containing
expression that ends prematurely, so it does a bit of backtracking.
(This is the `skip-syntax-backward' call in latex-forward-sexp-1).
I'm not sure what the best way to fix this is, though.
